About the course

An emergency can be anything that injures or has the potential to injure your employees, the environment, or your facility itself. Emergencies take the form of accidents, HAZMAT spills, fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, terrorism, earthquake, and virtually any other event that may injure people, the environment, or property. You may be prepared to apply your resources to emergencies that involve your facility but are you prepared for emergencies that require resources beyond those of your company? Are you prepared for emergencies that affect your entire area or community?
